Tall silence

Whilst I was wandering, Lonely
into the deep forest
Down its curved path
A tall silence gripped around me
Shrieking me over
By its cool blood

Not so fearful of
My humanly form – it seemed –
Many fantoms
Weired of multi-footings, came
Floating,
Gliding down
from the thick surrounding air
Flapping its big ears –
Lured me
into my being
And
Wide awake
Took a bane of my existence
And
Pulled me off

From that very moment
I willed my spirit too
To shear itself out
Along the lines of my body

Still
One could hear
The satiated shrill
Of tall silence
